    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I did not initially plan to be a psychology major. In fact, I came into college as a prospective statistics major who had never taken a psychology class before in my life. However, after taking this course and learning about the endlessly fascinating field of psychology, I decided to double major in statistics and psychology. Introduction to Psychology showed me that there is quite a bit of crossover between statistics and psychology. It also got me engaged with the department, which is one of the strongest at Amherst.

    Course highlights:

    Introduction to Psychology was just that-- an introduction. This course focused on breadth more than depth. We learned about many different aspects of psychology including statistical analysis, neurological evidence for specific psychological concepts, and abnormal psychology. This class provided a solid basis for psychological knowledge, which I found useful when I was taking courses in abnormal and cognitive psychology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you show up to every lecture and stay engaged in class, you will learn a lot. The textbook is a helpful supplement to the lectures, although- as the professor will tell you- exams focus on the information presented in class.
